That first novel, Devil's Desire, made her a part of the seminal generation of modern romance writers and you will see it on my How We Got To Where We Are Today recommended reading list for the uninitiated when I post it later this month. I am a huge fan of McBain's detailed, meticulously written and captivating historical novels.
Amazingly, her first two novels, Devil's Desire and Moonstruck Madness, each sold over a million copies. After the death of her father, with only seven novels published, McBain decided to retire from the publishing world in 1985. Sadly, the world of historical romance lost a truly great author.
I’ll be featuring reviews of her books on my blog this week. Stop by to read my praise for some superb historical love stories—ones that should be on your “keeper” shelf!
